Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru Coming to Sacramento

February 11, 2021 - Pacific Coast League (PCL) - Sacramento River Cats News Release


SACRAMENTO - More than 70 photorealistic dinosaurs have been stomping across Southern California since the New Year, and will migrate north to Sacramento for its first NorCal showing at Sutter Health Park from March 5-21, 2021.

Following sold-out showings in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego, Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru will transform the Sutter Health Park outdoor parking area into an interactive, contactless drive-thru experience, featuring more than 70 moving and life-like dinosaurs, as well as a 50 foot-long Megalodon. Jurassic Quest's herd of animatronic dinos are displayed in realistic scenes that allow guests to experience them roaring and moving as they drive through the tour. Although the drive-thru experience means visitors will stay safe inside their vehicle, they'll still need to avoid the roarsome T-Rex!

More than 300,000 vehicles and 1.5 million people have attended the Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru since the national tour launched in mid-July with stops in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Dallas, Oklahoma City, Detroit, Atlanta, Cincinnati, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, and Houston.

The Jurassic Quest Drive-Thru is the only place to encounter some of the largest dinosaurs to ever roam the Earth, and some of the eeriest marine creatures to ever lurk the ocean's depths, from the safety of your family vehicle. Guests will be among the first in the nation to go on a quest with our adventure-for-all-ages online audio tour that will lead them through the thrilling dinosaur safari. The audio tour is available in English and Spanish, and special accommodations can be made for the hearing impaired. For $49 per vehicle (8 people or less), your dino crew can time-travel and enjoy about an hour-long ride back in time.

Jurassic Quest worked in collaboration with leading paleontologists to ensure each dinosaur was painstakingly replicated in every detail, depicting how we understand dinosaurs looked and moved. In addition to the life-like dinosaurs, guests can greet one-of-a-kind baby dinosaurs and their trainers as well as pose for a prehistoric safari-style digital souvenir photo (one per vehicle).

Designed to be thrilling but not scary for our littlest adventurers, big or small, young or old, guests of Jurassic Quest have a dino-mite time!
